Wiccan Tips

Creating Your Own Spells Now Available

If you are new to Wicca, the first thing you may want to do is a spell.

You will find that the strongest spells are the ones you write yourself. With this book, you will learn not only how to write spells, but also when. Items that are needed and preparing yourself.

You can also use this for creating your own rituals since they are just more detailed spell.


Basic Supplies for Wiccans Starting Out


First off, a journal comes in handy. This does not have to be elaborate. You can use a loose leaf or composition notebook. This is where you will keep spells you create or find (be sure to note where it was found).

Not just to illuminate your surroundings, candles. Try to get as many colors as you can find that won’t break the bank. I usually get a forty pack that has ten colors as well a single pack of white since it’s the most used color. You can find the forty pack here.

Then there are the jars. I can’t tell you how many I once had. Every baby food jar was saved. They were everywhere! With the herbs you may collect and blends you may create, jars are a necessity. Just remember to label them.

For protection and the banishment of negativity, you will need salt. One of the most least expensive of supplies. My only problem is when my husband runs out of salt in the kitchen, he hits my cupboard. Only thing is sometimes he forgets to put it back. With me and my OCD…

Herbs to choose would be Rosemary and Sage. Rosemary can be generally used as a substitution for any herb or plant. Sage is used for cleansing, removing negative spirits and banishing negativity. Note: White Sage is endangered, so please don’t use.

Used as a substitution for any other crystal or mineral is Clear Quartz. Be sure to cleanse with your salt first.

A few small cotton bags also known as sachets. One of the first things I learned to make when I started sewing. Right after the pillow. Load them with spell mixes, small ritual objects, or other items to create spells, mojo bags and gris gris bags.

Lastly, the most important thing is you. That’s right. It really doesn’t take much to begin. Most of the items I’ve listed I’m sure you have in your home right now. The main thing you need is you. Always have been. If it’s what you want, then go for it.


Wiccan Rede


Bide the Wiccan Law ye must,

In perfect love and perfect trust.

Eight words the Wiccan Rede fullfil;

An’ ye harm none, do what ye will.

What ye send forth comes back to thee,

So ever mind the Rule of Three.

Follow this with mind and heart.

Merry ye meet and merry ye part.

Simply put, the Wiccan Rede expresses that all actions have consequences. There is a longer of the Wiccan Rede also. My personal opinions are in line with the rules of:

The more you want out of life, the more you need to put into it.

Olympic athletes put in the hours to get to the Olympics. They just simply say “Hey, if I just walk into the games. I will win the gold.” Not happening. Don’t care how good you think you are.

If you are a Negative Nancy (or Ned) and that is how you see the world that is all you will get.

The best part of the Wiccan Rede is the multiplicity of ways we may understand it. It is important for any Wiccan to know and see this attraction. At the same time, it is important for any believer of the Rede to know its limitations. Appreciation for all of this is a basis that all those who claim to be Wiccan should employ in practice and also in principle.

This Wiccan law works equally well with positive choices. This is why I so believe in surrounding myself with positive people and avoiding the negative ones as much as possible. Even if it’s family members.


Magickal Substitution List


Are you just starting out in the Craft or a more experienced Practitioner? You either know or will know that herbs are a definite must for any witch. Herbs are fundamental in any witch’s kitchen. A witch can make so many things with just that one little plant, even an everyday herb to an exotic herb. What if you forgot it on your last trip to the store, or you don’t have that herb available and is on a wait list before it can been sent to you. What are you going to do then? Maybe there is an alternative that can be used for that particular herb.

I’ve given you this useful outline that you can refer back to at anytime whenever you are in doubt about substituting one herb for another. print this page out, If you would like, keeping it near as a useful reference.
